I completed my 200 hour course a few years ago, but did not complete a small portion of the post-course work. It was a requirement to assist in several classes for the instructor who led the training and to lead our own classes independently while incorporating assists. For several reasons, I did not and still do not plan to use hands on assists. Because I don’t have contact with this teacher anymore, I can’t get a Yoga Alliance certificate. Am I supposed to just suck it up and do it if I ever want to really teach? Is a Yoga Alliance certification really necessary? I feel I am very capable of giving effective verbal assists or giving demonstrations that could be helpful. I don’t know if it makes sense to do another 200 hour course. What would you recommend to someone in this position?
Sort of Certified
Do you have any advice for leading a class virtually whether it be live or even just a prerecorded video? I am a fairly new instructor in general but as a human I thrive off working with others face to face no matter what it is I’m doing. However, with the current situation of COVID-19 and needing to be distant, I know that if I branch out of my comfort zone and teach virtually I could make a positive impact on others. But I want to make sure I make the best impact I can given all circumstances.
Any advice of tips and tricks and even a mantra or affirmation to remind myself of would be much appreciated.
